Former Starehe MP Maina Kamanda was left in shame after a planned meeting went horribly wrong.
Kamanda was forced to make alternatives to a meeting with Jubilee Kibra candidate Macdonald Mariga in order to salvage the situation.
Dennis Itumbi, claimed on Monday that Kamanda and his group had scheduled a meeting with Mariga on Monday.
The former Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication secretary at the Office of the President through a tweet, alleged that 45 out of the 50 members who had availed themselves exited the meeting after being disappointed.
Itumbi proclaimed that the abrupt disarray was due to ODM Kibra candidate Imran Okoth showing up instead of the former Inter midfielder as promised.
The Digital secretary added that a meeting was later conveyed after the veteran politician was forced to call the services of Nixon Korir, to hide his shame.
“So, Today in Kibra, Kamanda and company mobilized under banner of Huduma Kitchen and the message was Mariga was going to meet them.”
“Only for Imran to turn up. 45 of them walked out and left Kamda with 5.”
“They then called Nixon Korir and a meeting was set up with them.” read the tweet from Itumbi.
So, Today in Kibra,
Kamanda &Co. Mobilized under banner of Huduma Kitchen & the message was Mariga was going to meet them.
Only for Imran to turn up.
45 of them walked out and left Kamda with 5.

This alleged meeting comes three days after Mariga suffered a new setback on his campaign trail.
On Saturday, the once Harambee Stars captain’s motorcade was stoned during a rally at Bukhungu grounds in Makina Ward.
The windows of the Toyota Landcruiser being used by Mariga’s team were shattered as the tyres were lit on the opposite side of the road by rowdy youth.
It was reported that the chaos ensued after the locals caught on of Deputy President William Ruto’s men with Ksh 10 million being used to buy Identification Cards (ID) from specific communities in the area.
The information was however disregarded by Albert Mwemusi who is the Jubilee party Head of Communication.
On Sunday, Mariga condemned the incident and thanked his supporters who had turned up for the gathering.
He encouraged his followers that the incident had only strengthened them and they would even campaign harder than before ahead of the slated November 7 by election.
